, eric cantor, congressman eric cantor, sometimes questioned about his loyalty to speaker boehner just cast his vote, and he voted for john boehner to maintain his speakership. we'll be right back with more "happening now." against these digestive issues with three strains of good bacteria. live the regular life. phillips'. jenna: a little bit about what's happening in the economy. we had new weekly jobs numbers from the labor d., and the number of americans filing for first-time unemployment rising to 372,000 in the last week of 2012. one number we try to look at is 375, 350,000, below those numbers is what you'd like to see to see some longer-term job growth. it's something that we're kind of bouncing in between, so we're going to continue to watch this number. adp, a company that prints paychecks, released their monthly report suggesting it actually went up in december, so that's a good sign. again, one report or from one private company showing 215,000 private jobs added. we'll ask about whether or not that's a seasonal hiring as we take a look at the labor department's big jo

the country should have been in this place in the first place. i don't think eric cantor challenges him but i think he a weaker speaker because of all this. jon: what about paul ryan? he voted for this thing, right? >> paul ryan you have to kind of wait and see. marco rubio was given a gift from god being in the senate and being able to vote against this thing. i think it will help him in the primaries. let's him stay pure and statesman like. paul ryan has more explaining to do going into presidential primaries going into all of this. he can make his case. he is persuasive guy. he has to say look i didn't want to dodge the tough question. this was the best possible decision, best possible decision among a lot of bad decisions to be made. but that will be, maybe have easier time making that case six months from now but there are not a lot of people on the right who want to hear it. jon: what about president obama? he sure seemed happy at that rally if that is what you want to call it? >> look i think president obama really doesn't appreciate the fact that he is the president to the e

him and eric cantor and others. so the real test here and i think challenge the president and john boehner sitting down again over the next three or four days. i think we have a few more days. we go over the cliff on the first but the new congress isn't sworn in until january 3rd. if they can work out, maybe just a small deal now. maybe down payments on cuts. maybe it is protecting, certainly protecting tax cuts for the middle class and small businesses and doing, you know, a few things to medicare, and then that gets us into next year where we can do bigger stuff like corporate tax reform and larger reforms to the tax code. jon: amos, what do you think about that proposal? >> that proposal, the whole situation is telling. we didn't have to be here. we all saw this coming for months. we knew it was coming. doug is right, house republicans did act. they acted to stop the defense cuts and stop the tax hikes. what happened since then, senate democrats have done nothing with it. i think president obama, senator reid, they have to bear some responsibility they haven't moved any of this

to stop with the house republicans and john boehner and eric cantor in particular. jon: that's what we're talking about. let me play for you what senator tom harkin said just a bit ago. we opened the senate session this hour with senate majority leader harry reid who basically said we're still talking but no progress or no real progress to report. didn't say much very frankly. then senator harkin took the microphone. here is what he had to say. >> if we're going to have a deal, the deal has to favor the middle class, the real middle class, those making 30, 50, 60, $70,000 a year. that is the real middle class in america. and as i see this thing developing, quite frankly, as i have said before, no deal is better than a bad deal. this looks like a very bad deal the way this is shaping up. jon: ron, what about that plan b bill that the house passed or you know, what was considering, that would have raised taxes on those making a million dollars and up? >> well that is what is confusing me is that we want, republicans want to save taxpayers as many taxpayers as possible. we want to save
